BLOG TOUR - Exposure by Morgan & Jennifer Locklear

Publicist Shaunna Noble is no stranger to the ego-filled dysfunction of Hollywood's elite, but is she ready for her two biggest clients to turn into her worst nightmare?

Kyle Petersen and Michelle Cooper are Hollywood royalty, everyone's favorite celebrity couple, but while on location filming their new summer blockbuster, Kyle ambushes his wife with divorce papers and orders Shaunna to destroy Michelle in the media. Unwilling to comply, Shaunna spectacularly and publicly quits her job, humiliating Kyle in the process.

David Quinn, a struggling actor cast alongside the A-listers, is caught in the crossfire. When pictures surface of David and Michelle out on the town, media and fans rush to crown them Hollywood's new hot couple. Kyle explodes, tensions boil over, and everyone's lives and careers are thrown into jeopardy.

So what's a publicist to do? Especially when Shaunna finds herself falling in love with the sexy and talented David. Can she put out fires on the set while keeping the flames burning in the 

Love, lies and passion. What happens when the naked truth is exposed?

When his eyes settled on Shaunna again, she was completely nude. Her pert nipples were beacons to the gentle valley between her round breasts. David's stare followed the path of least resistance to the tiny and tidy garden of brown curls that split the river of skin.

He suddenly realized how very, very overdressed he was and fidgeted slightly as he dragged his heavy eyes back up to hers. "Allow me to reciprocate," he murmured as he began to loosen his necktie.

"Let me," Shaunna offered as she stepped toward him.

David obediently dropped his arms to his sides, allowing the naked woman to undress him.

"This is a nice tie," she commented as she slid it from his neck. "You had it with you in Texas?"

David nodded his head. "I brought all my clothes with me."

“Of course you did,” Shaunna said as she walked around behind him and removed his jacket.

She especially liked the way men looked in vests when their jackets were off. She admired how David’s fit figure was accented by the corset nature of his pinstriped, three-buttoned special. Shaunna appreciated him as she completed her circle.

She then backed up to get, and give, a better view.

"Have a seat." Shaunna gestured to a custom rock bench near the edge of the black tiled pond. 
David sat and she began removing his shoes.

He looked down at the nude beauty working the laces and willed himself not to be ticklish for the next thirty seconds of his life. Her touch, however, was too delicate and he was just too tender-footed. David chortled and twitched, giving himself away. To her credit, Shaunna did not take advantage of her newfound knowledge until she had removed his other shoe and both his socks. She feathered the balls of his feet with her fingers before she allowed him to stand again.

"Don't worry," she assured him as she began unbuttoning his vest. "I'm ticklish too." She opened it and then pressed her firm body up against his while she claimed another kiss.

Rating and review: ♥♥♥♥1/2
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book and from the beginning I was hooked.  All of the characters have great chemistry with each other (some more toxic than others), and it's with the chemistry between the players that helps the story flow along without any dragging or slow paces that makes you want to skim along. Shaunna is the daughter of one of the most formidable producers in Hollywood, but she much prefers her role way off camera as one of the best publicists, with her two biggest clients being Hollywood royalty Kyle Peterson and his wife Michelle Cooper. 
Shaunna has a "you go girl" moment during the shooting of the newest film starring Kyle and Michelle, which results in charges being brought against her. You feel for Michelle from the beginning of the book, simply because Kyle is nothing more than a d-nozzle, who deserves everything that happens to him. David Quinn is a B-list actor who was pretty much done with acting when he landed a role in the movie; he's humble and unassuming, (and it doesn't hurt that he's pretty to look at). He's really into Shaunna, but has to play by Hollywood rules both on- and off-set.
Quick, witty dialogue with a few twists and turns, this is a great read and I'm looking forward to reading future books from Morgan & Jennifer Locklear.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
